Small breed dogs tend to have faster metabolisms, which means they require more calories to sustain their energy and overall health. Our small breed recipes are designed for this, with optimal amounts of protein and fat. The kibble itself is also smaller, which it makes it easier (and safer) to eat.
The #1 ingredient in this Halo Holistic food is responsibly sourced chicken. It’s certified by the Global Animal Partnership, which ensures a cage-free, enriched environment for farm-raised animals. What’s that mean for you? Higher quality food for your pet. Oh, and we use whole chicken and no meat meals for easy digestion (everybody wins). Read more about responsibly sourced whole meat on our blog, The Feed.

Halo Holistic® Healthy Grains Cage-free Chicken and Brown Rice Recipe is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profile for maintenance.
Small-breed dogs often have faster metabolisms than large-breed dogs, so we include higher levels of protein in our small-breed recipes. Also, the kibble itself is smaller, which is ideal for breeds with smaller mouths.
The Global Animal Partnership and Marine Stewardship Council are independent organizations that promote animal welfare and sustainability for farm animals and seafood. To achieve compliance, farmers and fishermen must meet rigorous standards and undergo independent audits. At Halo, we stand behind our collective responsibility to the environment and our planet’s health. We’re proud that our Holistic recipes are responsibly sourced and certified.
GMO stands for genetically modified organism. It’s when an organism is genetically changed from its natural state to encourage a specific quality or feature. Non-GMO organisms are 100% natural and not genetically modified in any way. Using non-GMO ingredients supports ecological harmony, biodiversity and environmental well-being. We’re proud that all of our Holistic recipes are made with non-GMO ingredients.
Studies suggest that minimally processed ingredients like whole meat, poultry and fish offer superior levels of naturally occurring vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. They’re also easier to digest compared to processed ingredients that have been exposed to high heat.
The changes to the recipes aren’t so significant that a transition is required. If you have a pet with sensitive stomach, you might want to consider a schedule like this:
- Day 1: 75% old food. 25% new food
- Day 3: 50% old food, 50% new food
- Day 5: 25% old food, 75% new food
- Day 7: 100% new food
The pets of our very own Halo team have tried our new recipes — and they love them. We have a money-back guarantee, so if your pet doesn’t love our food, you’ll get a full refund.
Halo Holistic uses cage-free chicken that’s been certified by the Global Animal Partnership, which means the chickens were raised on farms in a humane way. Rather than being confined in cages, they lived in an enriched environment that stimulated their natural social behaviors and allowed them access to the outdoors. Additionally, they were fed a species-appropriate diet with no antibiotics.
Yes. Brown rice is a highly digestible source of carbohydrates, which provide energy. It also contains several essential vitamins and minerals.
No. The meat and poultry in Halo Holistic is certified by the Global Animal Partnership. To meet that organization’s standards, all animals must be raised without the use of growth hormones or antibiotics.
We sure do. If you or your pet aren’t completely satisfied, simply return the unused portion of food to wherever you purchased it. You’ll receive a refund of the purchase price or a replacement. (The fine print: one refund per family, per product.) Need help? No problem. Get in touch anytime.
